Thank you @Cleoriff 

After some tricky questions in previous WRQs, I tried to find a balance with this one - even though there is probably one or two questions which might need thinking about or even a guess.

I admit a couple which need thinking about @MI5 but also, in my opinion, a couple of nice "easier" ones to.
